Listening to a very interesting podcast from FLOSS Weekly, in which Keith Packard from freedesktop.org gives his view on the RMS question.
Enclosed is a very interesting minute of that episode.
This is an excellent graph from NOS.nl showing how the UK variant (also B.1.1.7, or Kent variant) could become prevalent in the Netherlands.
The reason for this is that this variant's Rt is currently at ~1.3, while the other corona's Rt is at ~0.9.
Finally, the Dutch dashboard shows the victim count. It shows a terrifying trend.
Normal day in Netherlands. Tram rams though the buffer stop. Lands on whale sculpture.
Inspiring German talk about Utopia's. "Utopien von Progress zu Prozess"
Interesting how NOS.nl embeds a birdtoot from one of their own reporters. And embedded as well, so it can peek back at the readers. Why does NOS direct their reader's browsers to interact with Twitter?
Furthermore the content of the tweet is itself worrying, as in summary it warns of quickly spreading COVID near Luik/Liège(BE).
Here the Dutch news article (watch out for the embedded junk)
"This is currently required by the kernel due to a dependency bug"
Is more information available? The statement has no link to this bug and I wasn't able to quickly find it.
Interesting presentation today by RIVM (the Dutch CDC)
Significant contribution from student housing / dormitories suggested / implied.

Germany giving a better example.
Update on the spike. Also note the age distribution changing.
Ugly spike is now looking more like a second wave.
Ugly spike continues.
Gnome help needed

Update from today is not looking better.
